Which is the first colour movie produced in India ?

(2) Mughal-e-Azam
(3) Aan
(4) Do Bigha Zameen

Answer: Film pioneer Ardeshir Irani, who had produced notable films as Nala Damayanti (1920) which was India’s first international co-production(with Italy) and India’s first talkie Alam Ara (1931) conceived the idea of producing a colour film. The result of his efforts was the colour film Kisan Kanya made with the Cinecolour process whose process rights Irani had obtained from an American company. V. Shantaram
had earlier produced a Marathi film Sairandhri (1933) which had scenes in colour. However, the film was
processed and printed in Germany. Kisan Kanya was, therefore, India’s first indigenously made colour film.
